From The Week. November 11, 2011. You don’t have to be a collie to act like Lassie. Just ask Titan, a pit bull terrier from Lawrenceville, Ga., who helped save his owner’s life earlier this year. John Benton was preparing to leave for work when Titan blocked the exit to his house. ‘He was barking and running around in circles,’ Benton said. He followed his dog upstairs to find his wife, Gloria, unconscious on the floor, having fallen and cracked her skull. Titan’s loyalty has been recognized by a local neighborhood association, which last week granted him its annual ‘Neighbor of the Year’ award.
